    Fans of the Nintendo DS may have been immune to the siren song of Nintendo’s tweaked DSi model. Unfortunately, I have a feeling a bunch of you are about to upgrade your handheld game system. Why? Because the folks at AQ Interactive are doing an upgraded version of the DS-10 software synth for the game platform, now on the DSi.

    New in this version:

    * Twice the analog synths (4 of them, instead of 2)
    * Twice the drum machines (8 instead of 4)
    * Twice the tracks (12 instead of 6)
    * Expanded song mode: programmable track mute, realtime editing (that is, edit parameters inside the song mode

    [​IMG] wow!!

    Haha this looks pretty sick! I think DSiWare download would be neat for this.

    Man, that looks fantastic! It's a shame that the option to double the synths, drum machines, and tracks is only on the DSi, though!

    Still, being able to edit parameters in song mode was something the original needed.

    More patterns needed! Will it have more?

    Might have to get a DSi now, damn you!!!

    I suppose the DS lite can be my GBA, since I never had one.

    this would only be due to the extra ram would it not? maybe it can be patched to use the ram expansion..

    This isn't the only game getting the DSi treatment, Dragon Quest IX has some options, and Idolmaster: Dearly Stars will have DSi enhancements.

    hmm, I should actually make a topic about this, but since you mentioned it: does anybody know for the DSi enhanced games, if you use the rom and play the game on a flashcart using the DSi, are the DSi only stuff unlocked? or does it still get treated as a regular DS due to the flashcart.

    Theoretically that would be a no due to DSi's security unless it's cracked and firmware for flashcarts are available. Those enhancements may be region locked since they are using the DSi hardware, so there's a high chance that you may not be able to use them on a US or Europe DSi, however I'm not sure about this but it's a high chance with these types of games and the fact that all games with the enhancements are Japan only.

    If anyone is getting Korg DS-10 and/or Idolmaster: Dearly Stars and owns a US or European DSi, you will need to test this immediately after launch.

    this is what im hoping/thinking...would be awesome....guess we'll just havta wait and see when it comes out. hopefully someone out there will mess with this.


    what makes me pessimistic about this is that the dsi has a faster processor as well as more ram....(im not sure exactly how much ram the expansion pak adds) some sites say it adds 8mb which would still be short of the 16mb the dsi has.

    Hello everybody, I just bought a Dsi system in France (the Usa flag in my profile is a setting mistake i did) and got the korg ds plus extension by the post after having checked it on ebay (japan seller) ...
    I'm sad, it doesn't work. Now you can have confirmation that the compatibility between korg ds plus and non-japanese dsi systems are region locked.
    Disappointed ! So sad !
    Then... take care !

    Umm, everyone already knew that. DSi and Wii are region locked.

    Mhm, the DSi is region locked but the original DS and DSLite are not. It's been known for a while. DSiWare is one reason and possible some others reasons like piracy.. i dunno [​IMG].
    KORG DS-10 PLUS would have been ripped and out but for some reason it messes up on all flashcarts from the few sites i've read. There most be something specific to the code that prevents the normal boot.
